Quote by Leo Tolstoy
And love of power, is inconsistent with goodness; but quite consistent with the very opposite qualities--pride, cunning, cruelty.
The most powerful symptom of love is a tenderness which becomes at times almost insupportable.
Too often we give others the power of controlling our emotions. Replace fear, hate and anger with love and you will be free.
Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread.
When we are in love we seem to ourselves quite different from what we were before.
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straight forwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I know no other way.
No, this trick won't work...How on earth are you ever going to explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love?
Immature love says, "I love you because I need you." Mature love says, "I need you because I love you."
Love has its own instinct, finding the way to the heart, as the feeblest insect finds the way to its flower, with a will which nothing can dismay nor turn aside.
Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do, but how much love we put in that action.
I believe love produces a certain flowering of the whole personality which nothing else can achieve.
We conceal it from ourselves in vain - we must always love something. In those matters seemingly removed from love, the feeling is secretly to be found, and man cannot possibly live for a moment without it.
